Your monthly Kisqali cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Kisqali patient assistance program you can get your medication for free. Our monthly flat rate of $49 per medication covers the cost of our services in applying for the program and requesting your ongoing refills on your behalf. If you obtain your Kisqali through NiceRx you will only pay $49 a month regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Kisqali patient assistance program?

You could receive your Kisqali without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. This criteria is set by the pharmaceutical companies who are providing assistance programs. At NiceRx we review each application individually, although the main factors considered by most programs are:

  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for Kisqali patient assistance?

We do everything that we can to take the hassle and stress out of applying for patient assistance programs. Simply start by filling in our enrollment application. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical companies you are applying to for assistance. We may also be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications that you have been prescribed, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Kisqali.

NiceRx will review the information you have provided, and if we determine that you may be eligible for assistance we will seek to enroll you in the Kisqali patient assistance program. We will handle the enrollment process for you by working with your healthcare provider and preparing all the required paperwork for your doctor to sign. We will also request your Kisqali medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.

Is NiceRx a Kisqali coupons provider?

At NiceRx, we help eligible individuals access the Kisqali patient assistance program. This means that we are not a Kisqali coupon, a Kisqali discount card, or a Kisqali copay card provider. We do not offer any medication trial offers or free Kisqali samples.

Can NiceRx help me get Kisqali if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you if you have insurance, including if your insurance company will not pay for your Kisqali medication or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may even be able to assist if you do not have insurance. Please fill in our enrollment application to find out more.

How much is Kisqali with insurance?

The cost of Kisqali will vary in line with the specific terms of your healthcare plan. For further details about what you may need to pay, your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate the copay costs with your current insurance.

How much is Kisqali without insurance?

Kisqali costs without insurance will vary depending on the retailer you buy it from. As a guide, 21 tablets of 200mg Kisqali oral tablets will typically cost around $5,927. If you obtain your medication through NiceRx you will pay a flat monthly rate of $49 per medication regardless of its retail price.

What is Kisqali?

Kisqali (ribociclib) is a prescription medicine given to treat women with hormone-related breast cancer. Kisqali is used to stop the growth and spread of cancer to other parts of the body. It is only used if you test negative for a protein called human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). Kisqali is given with other cancer medicine such as letrozole or fulvestrant.

You will need regular medical tests while taking Kisqali and your cancer treatment may be delayed based on the results of these tests.

Kisqali active ingredients

The active ingredient in Kisqali is called ribociclib. It is a type of medicine that inhibits cyclin-dependent kinases (CDK) 4 and 6. CDK is involved in the growth of cancer cells. By stopping CDK, ribociclib prevents the growth and spread of cancer. Using ribociclib with letrozole or fulvestrant has a greater effect on stopping the growth of cancer.

Kisqali side effects

The most common side effects caused by Kisqali include:

  • Headaches
  • Feeling sick (nausea)
  • Being sick (vomiting)
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Cough
  • Rash
  • Feeling tired
  • Infection – low white blood cells
  • Hair loss

Kisqali can also cause more serious side effects, contact your doctor if you have:

  • An allergic reaction – hives, difficult breathing, face or throat swelling
  • A severe skin reaction – red or purple skin rash with peeling and blistering, fever, sore throat, skin pain, burning eyes
  • Swollen glands – severe weakness, muscle aches, unusual bruising, yellowing of eyes or skin (jaundice)

  • Fast heart rate – short of breath, sudden dizziness
  • Liver problems – jaundice, loss of appetite, upper stomach pain, tired, easily bruised
  • Your doctor will assess the benefits of taking Kisqali against your risk of side effects

Kisqali drug interactions

Kisqali can interact with other medications. This includes over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. This can change how Kisqali and the other medications work and can make some side effects more likely. They include medicines for:

  • Infections – azithromycin, sparfloxacin
  • Asthma  – salmeterol, terbutaline
  • Heart problems – sotalol, bepridil
  • High blood pressure – amlodipine
